Quarterback Chase Litton threw nearly a perfect game with six touchdown passes as Marshall University’s Thundering Herd smacked the Morgan State Bears, 62-0, in a non-conference college football game on Sept. 10 in Huntington, West Va.
Litton completely shredded the Bears’ secondary, completing 13-of-16 pass attempts for 309 yards. All six of his touchdown passes came in the first half as he led Marshall to a 49-0 lead by halftime.

With such a huge lead, Litton didn’t need to play much of the second half and Marshall simply ran the football to drain the clock and secure the lopsided victory.

Morgan State’s offense struggled to compete against Marshall’s stout defense – senior quarterback Chris Andrews and freshman QB DeAndre Harris shared reps, but neither was able to produce much. Harris was 9-for-16 for 91 yards and Andrews completed 6-of-17 for 84 yards while also throwing an interception.

The Bears also struggled running the ball, recording just 47 rushing yards total as a team.

Next: Morgan State will get a break next week, then prepare for a fairer matchup as they face fellow Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference (MEAC) team, the Howard Bison, on Sept. 24 at Hughes Stadium in Baltimore, Md.
